US congressman Scalise still in critical condition - hospital

US congressman Scalise still in critical condition - hospital

Scalise, 51, was among four people shot by a gunman identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois, who died after a shootout with police.

He has had several operations since the shooting. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation and did so only on condition of anonymity.

The list contained about a dozen names, a source said.

Scalise's surgeon says he can hope to make an "excellent recovery", despite being at risk of death when he arrived at the hospital. "Dr. Jack Sava of MedStar Washington Hospital Center said it's a 'good possibility" that the Louisiana Republican will be able to return to work in his full capacity.

Scalise is being treated in the hospital's intensive care unit.

The bullet entered Scalise's left hip and tore across his pelvis, cracking bones and injuring organs and blood vessels.

"Tonight we're all Team Scalise", Pelosi said.

Hospital officials said it is hard to predict how long the congressman will be in the hospital, but that he is expected to be able to walk and hopefully run after a period of rehabilitation. After discharge he will need a period of healing and rehabilitation. He said doctors have turned down Scalise's sedation levels enough that he has been able to respond to visiting family members.

Suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

Griner remained in the hospital in good condition after sustaining a gunshot wound to the ankle, according to a Friday update.

Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.

Associated Press writers Lauran Neergaard and Maria Danilova in Washington, and Jim Salter in St. Louis contributed to this report.

Scalise and three others were shot Wednesday morning at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

Senior Congressman Steve Scalise's condition was upgraded to "serious" after he underwent a second surgery on Saturday, after he was injured in a shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice earlier this week.

Scalise "continues to show signs of improvement", MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement Saturday evening. More than $1 million has been raised for Congressional Sports for Charity so far, the game's organizers announced.

House Speaker Paul Ryan has paid a visit to wounded Majority Whip Steve Scalise at the hospital.
